Most beginning scrappers find that their love for scrapbooking is accompanied by a lust for scrap supplies that might be even greater than the love for their hobby.  Before long, one accumulates more supplies than he or she knows what to do with.  Some of the most versatile supplies are scrapbooking templates.  As these are not consumables, such as paper and adhesives, long-term storage options will soon be necessary.  It is important that it is an organization and storage solution that works for you.

Before looking at storage options, you first need to examine what kinds of templates you have and how many of each type there are.  Most collections will contain a variety.  The most common categories of templates are listed below.

  • Alphabet templates – These can be used to create titles and page elements.
  • Shape templates – There are a variety of shape templates on the market from the simple ones used to make circles and similar shapes, to paper doll templates to chalking templates to page design templates.
  • Journaling templates – These can be used to create text boxes and guide your journaling lines in any number of shapes in many varieties of themes.
  • Embossing templates – These are usually smaller templates made from metal.  Their purpose is to create a raised design on paper (usually cardstock) and are used with an embossing tool.
